As a Sensory Integration Practitioner, would you like to take your knowledge and practice to the next level in 2020 by achieving Advanced Practitioner status? You can do this on Sensory Integration Education’s fully refreshed online SI Module 4: Advanced Practice, which has been designed around the NHS’s advanced clinical practice definition and, like all our practitioner training courses, is accredited by a UK university. The first cohort starts in March 2020: could you be on it?
Working with and supporting researchers and practitioners at the leading edge of sensory integration, we invested a year of development in updating and reinvigorating our Advanced SI Practitioner qualification.
SI Module 4: Advanced Practice will enable you to develop the knowledge and skills you require to become an SI Advanced Practitioner working across settings and clinical populations. In addition to achieving the advanced status, you can work towards a Postgraduate Diploma and Masters in Sensory Integration.
We began with the NHS’s definition of advanced clinical practice, which has currency worldwide,...
“It is a level of practice characterised by a high degree of autonomy and complex decision making. This is underpinned by a master’s level award or equivalent that encompasses the four pillars of clinical practice, leadership and management, education and research, with demonstration of core capabilities and area specific clinical competence. Advanced clinical practice embodies the ability to manage clinical care in partnership with individuals, families and carers. It includes the analysis and synthesis of complex problems across a range of settings, enabling innovative solutions to enhance people’s experience and improve outcomes”
… and designed the module around these principles, enabling you to further develop your knowledge and skills gained from your PG Certificate in SI.
Let’s look at the recharged course. The course is designed to train clinicians in the practical skills and activities of therapy as well as the principles behind therapy. There are three themes around which your advanced practitioner learning is focused:
- Clinical practice
- Clinical application of research
- Clinical service development
In order to support your advancing clinical reasoning and clinical skill development, you will hear from national and international experts, in addition to SIE-certified Advanced Practitioners. Our Advanced Practitioner Module e-Mentors will support your learning throughout. In order to ground your developing skills, you will undertake 20 hours of clinical practice supported by a Clinical Mentor. All learning is supported by high quality, specifically-commissioned, online learning content.
Upon successful completion of the three assessment pieces, you will be entitled to use the title SIE SI Advanced Practitioner; gain 20 UK university academic credits which are globally recognised and highly transferable; and be listed as an Advanced Practitioner in the Association of SI Practitioners' Register.
On a practical note, you can find all the information you need on the course here, as well as details of membership discounts and interest-free monthly payment plans.
If Advanced Practitionership is your goal for 2020, we sincerely hope you consider achieving it with us!
